GuanĂ­n is an alloy of copper, gold and silver, similar to red gold, used in pre-Columbian central America. The name guanĂ­n is taken from the language of the TaĂ­no people, who prized it for its reddish color, brilliant shine, and unique smell, and associated it with both worldly and supernatural power. It was also known as taguagua, and in South America as tumbaga. The Spanish referred to it as "low gold", distinguishing it from items made with a higher purity of gold.

  • GuanĂ­n is an alloy of copper, gold and silver, similar to red gold, used in pre-Columbian central America. The name guanĂ­n is taken from the language of the TaĂ­no people, who prized it for its reddish color, brilliant shine, and unique smell, and associated it with both worldly and supernatural power. It was also known as taguagua, and in South America as tumbaga. The Spanish referred to it as "low gold", distinguishing it from items made with a higher purity of gold. Samples of guanĂ­n have been found all over central America, indicating a great deal of trade and interaction between the many cultures that lived in the area. GuanĂ­n was used to create and decorate a variety of objects, including both humanoid and animal figurines using lost-wax casting, and hammered ceremonial medallions also referred to as guanĂ­n. For many years, guanĂ­n was one of the most important valuables for long-distance trade in and around central America and the Caribbean basin.
